Plaid, Leather & Booties

SONY DSC

Wow. What a bad blogger I’ve been. I don’t even know how I’ve stayed away for a little over 2 weeks, and I apologize. My days have been so hectic with starting my new job, along with my family life. I am back, though!! And better than ever ;) BUT, and an unfortunate but, due to our lovely Montreal weather, *insert sarcasm here*, outfit photos will have to begin being taken indoors. Yes, I know the lighting and scenery is clearly better outdoors, but I would rather a blank wall to accompany my outfit rather then a cold :P I’ll try to get as many pictures out of the house as I can, but for the meantime, please enjoy my grey wall.

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve been hunting for perfect booties that would fit my style, as well as my wallet. I was thrilled when I came across these booties while setting up the shoe stock room. They’re perfect, as they can be worn with a dress or jeans, and the heel is high enough for some height, and low enough to be worn at work.

Are you a fan of fall fashion, or do you long for the days of shorts & ice cream? Do tell!! Have an enjoyable day and stay classy!

SONY DSCYes, another plaid shirt to go with the one I featured on my week of style here (and here, here, here :P)

SONY DSCThe gold plate on these heels is what really caught my eye. I’ve always mentioned how much I love simple items with that added touch, and these booties fall right into that category.

My favorite new top

002

Ever since getting pregnant with my first daughter about 4 years ago, and then after she was born, having my second daughter exactly 18 months later, I really wasn’t in any shape (pun intended) or mood to even want to think about shopping, let alone actually going through with it! Which is quite a surprise considering I LOVE clothing, shoes, accessories  etc. Now that the youngest is 2, I’ve been working very hard to get my body back, if not better! I recently looked at my wardrobe and thought “Damn, I need an update”. After finding this top in Vegas, I knew that it was the perfect addition to my updated wardrobe.

Loose tops, tights tops, there’s a time and place for both, but I feel like more recently, I’m drawn to the loose, long look. Looking at this top, you can see why I fell hard for it. It’s perfection from the color, to the fit, to the oh-so soft fabric. Can be paired with skinnies (as I did here), would look super cute with shorts, and can also be pulled off with a looser type of pant, just have to make sure they fit together!

On another note, I’ll be leaving for New York on Thursday (this time, just the hubby & I), and this is actually only my 2nd time there!! We’re super stoked to be having a mini-vacation by ourselves. Any suggestions out there on what we must do/see/eat?? We’re looking forward to eating mostly food trucks and DDD spots. Would love to hear any suggestions!! Stay classy, realists!

p.s. I’ve still yet to fix my camera, which means photos are continuing to being taken with my iPhone, but bear with me! A new lens will come soon, hopefully ;)

004 008 I love that the style is to be buttoned to the top, but I’ve also worn it opened which looks just as good!019 My first amazing purchase from a previous trip to Vegas :)011 025 027Top: Ted Baker, Pants: Vero Moda, Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Sunglasses: Aldo, Bracelet: Forever21, Ring: BCBG
